Sunday, June 1: Things I saw on my run today

So, I didn’t take photos at last Sunday’s run (the 1/2 marathon race) because I was chatting all the way with a young woman from Charlotte, North Carolina.  But, today I was out for a 10K run on my own with camera in hand.

On my first walking break, I took a picture of one of the many sets of stairs down to the beach along my running route…looks mysterious with all the trees.

Wild rose season is starting to slow down, but there are still plenty left blooming along the way.

Ah, the banners are set up for the kite festival – it’s going to be busy as I get closer to Clover Point…

Here is one of the larger kites getting ready to fly.  I never did see it fully in the air, but I think it would have been pretty impressive.
